Elon


#10

these are not the same names


#11

is any name the same if it’s spelt differently?


#12

like when people say “oh your name means this”. mate don’t tell me what my name means! It’s just a dumb name my parents gave me.

#14

Some names have the same roots/are cognates in different languages

Eoin/Eòin and Eoghan/Eòghan are derived from different roots. Eoghan has a Celtic derivation (possibly yew tree ) whereas Eoin is derived from Latin Ioannes.

[ Eógan ] The name corresponds to the Welsh Owain , often spelt Owen in English;[1][3] as well to Ewen, Ewan and Euan.


#15

yeah, that’s true and I get that but it feels like a weird distinction to me in a way.


#16

not really a distinction

these are just not the same names with different spellings

they are different spellings because they are different names


#17

strange that you end up with one name with such power and identity to it when it’s just something your parents thought up in an idle moment


#18

do you think anyone has ever changed their name to a melodic phrase?

I would like that.


#19

Never knew that, so they all have the same root/correspond to each other except for Eoin?
